Perspectives of Chuukese patients and their health care providers on the use of different sources of interpreters.
Hawaii J Med Public Health 71(9):249-52.
Abstract : The preference of Chuukese patients for using a family member or friend as interpreter differs from national standards which promote the use of a professional interpreter. Given the preference of both physicians and Chuukese patients for in-person interpreters over telephone interpreters, there is a need for increased training and hiring of in-person interpreters.
